Minehead First School Making sure school matters to every child

School Values

Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.


Our Mission Statement

We aim to create a caring community based on strong principles, in which your child can feel happy and secure and where your child’s intellectual, emotional and physical potential can develop to the full.


Our Ethos

The ethos of our school is based around dome long established values and beliefs:

  • If children live with tolerance they learn to be patient.
  • If children live with encouragement they learn confidence.
  • If children live with praise they learn to appreciate.
  • If children live with fairness they learn justice.
  • If children live with security they learn to have faith.
  • If children live with approval  they learn to like themselves.


Our School Values

Each week we concentrate on particular values in assemblies and lessons generally. There is a values cup awarded to the child in each class who has demonstrated the value most.
